    Something doesn't sound right. Either the Doctors are totally inept or this story is fabricated.

    Autopsy much?

    body staying warm? I wonder if russia embalms people? I would think if this was real CNN or one of the other big news channels would be carrying it?

    No autopsy, no embalming done? The doctors didn't hear a heartbeat. Not hooked up to any machines before pronounced dead the first time? Urban Legend for sure.

    This definitely sounds like a "red" story on Snopes.

    At one time, there was such a thing as a Safety Casket with a bell attached and a length of string, so those improperly interred could alert people that there was a live person six feet under.

    Also, small lights called Ghost Lights were often left on in theaters so ghosts could more easily perform when the theater was empty. Just sayin'.

    Yup, forever ago... Dead ringers, Saved By The Bell. Poe wrote some good premature burial stories.

    But for it to happen in this day and age is slight.

    Or, perhaps in that part of Russia, times are tough and doctors did not have time or the money to perform a proper investigation, so she was declared dead and she was not dead so she was buried and apparently, objected to it.

    Put this story in the "it is indeed possible and there is precedence in this country" department.

    Details arent given, no large news media picked it up. Just smacks of urban legand or hoax. If they were too poor for basic exams, like is there a heartbeat, how did they afford a casket or funeral? Declaring someone dead isn't too sterilized. All one needed to do is put ear to chest.

    A funeral usually takes place days after a death. Was she in the morgue alive or in a coma that whole time?

    Not true. There are any number of reasons for a decreased heart rate and putting an ear to the chest is not always accurate. Perhaps her heart stopped and restarted later for some reason the doctor could not fathom or diagnose? Not at all unprecedented.

    Suppose the doctor was incompetent? Not beyond the realm of reason.

    Man wakes up during his own autopsy

    One would assume the doctors above were competent.

    Not enough data and therefore, it could be true. Or just BS.

    I remember how sad it was when, according to The Onion, a despondent cow jumped off the Trans-America Building to commit suicide. Then I discovered what the Onion was about.
